Essar Energy downplays 'hostage' report, govt to help settle issue

When asked what prompted them to come to the Writers', if there was no major problem, the officials said the meeting was a routine one. "We have just updated them about the project and issues involving it. This is just a follow-up meeting," Ranjan said, adding: "There are few people who are demanding compensation and we have requested the state authorities to identify the landlosers." Asked if they sought additional security, the officials said the company "always demand security" from the state government.

Meanwhile, Partha Chatterjee said every industrial house must involve villagers where they operate industries. "The project was taken up during the Left regime and there are allegations that patta land were sold without informing the state government. As far as the yesterday's incident is concerned, the company officials do not have anything to say about law and order issue. Only four landlosers have not received compensation. When the project was taken up, these four landlosers were identified but compensation were not awarded. We will verify whether the four identified persons are the actual landlosers."
